AZ ASCD’s Powered by Teach to Lead Summit Idea Submissions
Over the past three years, Teach to Lead has helped drive a national conversation on teacher leadership and helped teachers turn their leadership ideas into action. The US Department of Education, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, and ASCD have been joined by more than 100 supporting organizations in this critical work. It is Teach to Lead’s mission to expand opportunities for teacher leadership by providing resources, facilitating stakeholder consultation, and encouraging professional collaborations to develop and amplify the work of teacher leaders.

We are pleased that AZ ASCD, in partnership with the Arizona K12 Center, will host a Powered by Teach to Lead Summit in Tucson, AZ on June 8-9, 2018.

In Tucson, educators from across Arizona will work to collaborate, problem solve, and develop action plans to put their own expertise into action. Our hope is to attract exceptional educators in Arizona to use teacher leadership as a vehicle to change the face of education.

All active Arizona educators are welcome to submit ideas as individuals but we ask that you bring a team of stakeholders (teachers, principals, administrators, school board members, etc.) to make the best progress at the Summit. At least one member of your team MUST be a practicing classroom teacher.

Idea submissions are reviewed by a team of teachers and the AZ ASCD Board. For those who receive an invitation to participate, registration, lodging, and some meals are provided free of charge. You must cover your travel costs. You can submit an idea for the Summit regardless of where you live in Arizona, but travel costs are not covered, so please keep that in mind when you apply.

The deadline for idea submissions for the Tucson Powered by Teach to Lead Teacher Leadership Summit is Saturday, March 31, 2018, at 11:59 pm MST. All idea submissions must be completed and submitted by this date and time.

As space is limited for each Summit, idea submissions will be reviewed, and invitations for participation, with registration details, will be emailed to those accepted. Please read the criteria below carefully before submitting your idea.
